So far, almost all the models we’ve reviewed had one major drawback. This was the fact that they could not work without being connected to a smartphone. But, just when you must be starting to wonder if that’s the case with all Sous Vide machines, we’re here for you!
The answer to that is a big NO. That is not the case at all. In fact, there are quite a few models that are still as simple as before and work with a direct power connection and setting. Feel interested yet? Then what are you waiting for? The Article is all yours to read till the very end! In fact, don’t forget to share it on your social media if you love it that much!
What are some of the important things about this model?
This model is a special. Of course it’s special because it comes from the famous Gourmia line of products. But that’s not all that there is to it. It has quite a few things about itself that make it a loved model. So let us take a detailed look at the features of this model in order to find out what people actually love so much.
So, the main features that this model boasts of might be summed up in the following words:
- First of all is the fact it’s user friendly. This device has a great interface that you can use both digitally and manually. This is one of the very few machines that you can buy for your kitchen which gives you this. So of course, this machine is one of the simplest to use while being super functional at the same time. This thing, in itself, is reason enough for anyone to buy this machine.
- Next comes the fact that you can directly plug it in to the power source. Some machines work based on battery. Sometimes that’s a good thing but being able to use it directly with the power source is always the best. It’s one of those conventions which we’re still not feeling like changing. So yeah, way to go!
- This is one of the sous vide machines that gives you the same efficiency as the ovens. This makes this a lot better option to go for even in comparison to the ovens. That is because of the fact that these are not half as expensive as the oven models. So of course, from almost every perspective, this device is one of those which are truly worth going for.
- And of course, since it’s Gourmia, it had to be unique like this. I’m starting to believe that only Gourmia makes unique products, haha. So well, it’s super unique as you can see and I hope that anyone who uses it will love it.
- And finally, given all these things, this model is actually apparently worth going for. So if you’re looking for something that takes care of all the aspects at the same time, well here you are! So, I hope you take the best decision!
What are some of the shortcomings for this model?
This is a great model, as you just saw. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a few limitations too- all models do! And these are the things that still make quite a few people look away from even a good model such as this one. So, let us take a look at these things now:
- Some people complain that it’s not easy to use. While it’s functional and the interface is simple, it needs some specific things to use. For that, you might need some specific kind of containers or clips to hold it at the right place. So yeah, this is one of the main limitations for this model.
- Next comes the fact that it’s quite expensive. Yeah, I understand it’s sort of justified given how versatile it is. But that doesn’t mean that it had to be that expensive. Come on now, if it could be a bit more affordable, a lot more people would actually be able to go for it. And they would love it because of how good it is. The high price also makes it unavailable for people on a conservative budget. So, that’s disheartening.
Is it worth going for this model?
Well, this model is from Gourmia! Just consider that, and you’ll get your answer. This model is unique. And at the same time, it’s providing you with really high levels of everything (cost included LOL). But yeah, it’s going to give you a high level of functionality, a high quality, a high level of efficiency and whatnot!
So, at the end of the day, I’d say that it’s worth it. Yes, of course, it’s worth it only if you’re fine spending that much after it, but if you are, then it’s worth the money too. This is because of all that it offers while being unique. It’s bound to be worth it.
What are some of the main competing models for this product?
You might think that there’s no model competing against this product. Given the fact that it’s by Gourmia, it’s true in the places where it’s related to it’s uniqueness. However, there surely are some other products in the price range. In order to not confuse you, let us just mention the main competing product in terms of price.
So, the main Sous Vide with a similar cost as this model is the famous ChefSteps CS20001 Joule Sous Vide!
